  • I'm not a fan of rap but they were saying on the news that Macklemore is doing a show in Seattle. Since he's a local guy its cool to see what he has accomplished in his career so far. But they said tickets were $124. wtf?

    About the only bands i would pay $124 to see would be Led Zeppelin or Pink floyd or something and even then i would bitch about the price.

  • Yeah, you think Mac's made it yet?

    I think this might be the most underrated hip hop track of all time. Rakim is the shiz.

    Yeah, I think for now he's gettin while the gettin's good. We'll see what his staying power is. I'm hoping for the best. I fully expect he'll do all kind of free/crazy public appearances and publicity stunts in the future, it just depends on whether people still care or not. Pop fans are fickle.

  • They're only 4 spots in, Luck will be on there. MacSmiff (the hater) is Luck's brother, btw. Clearly he's aspiring to be Portland's Benzino. Believe, in the end Portland will probably get more love than Seattle... Cassow, Jon Belz & Illmac will all be top 5, I'd bet on it.

  • I think they already took Illmac off there, in the first episode they said Thaddeus David had barely beat him and Raz Simone for the 10th spot, but I see they did some jumping around after that, and put Neema at 10.

    Cassow deserves to be top 3 after his mixtape earlier this year, I loved that shit.

    Yeah, its just used for publicity purposes I guess, I didn't even know what Juice Radio was until they did this last year so mission accomplished on their part.

    Ranking artists really should be left up to an individual person, people are gonna like different styles and some are just technically more gifted than others, its a whole myriad of ways to rank artists, rappers in particular.

    (I finally used myriad in a sentence, win for me)

  • And "We Out Here" is just an online magazine started by my buddy Jake who then passed it on to MacSmiff (Fahiym) when he got too busy with other stuff to care about it anymore. I've always been a supporter and I'm trying to still be with Mac but damn it, I just don't really like the guy that much. And I don't have a lot of people I would say that about.
